Isn’t it great when a longtime hotel finally gets a ton of money thrown at it for a new look? That’s exactly what $115 million did for these two towers (formerly the Pacific Beach Hotel).
The hotel sits directly across the street from Kuhio Beach Park. The views from their oceanfront rooms are stunning. The new rooms have a pale sand-colored modern theme, which sets off the ocean color really well. They have Keurig coffee makers with free pods daily and mini fridges in every room. The new baths have either showers only or tub/shower combos, all with rainshower heads. Some bathrooms have Washlet toilets. We didn’t care for the hallway carpets and thought they looked like unfinished cement instead of the “sand washed by water” theme they were going for. Oh, well. The lobby was very dated before the renos with low copper mirrored ceilings and a mismatch of furnishings.
